South Caernarfon Creameries is Wales’ leading farmer owned dairy co-operative
Golden Anniversary for Fred
Maintenance man Fred Williams has recently celebrated his golden work anniversary at South Caernarfon Creameries, clocking up 50 years’ service.
Starting out as a carpentry apprentice at the farmer-owned
co-operative in 1967, fifty years later Fred’s still working as hard as
ever and has become a valued and trusted member of staff. As the
co-operative has grown and evolved over the past fifty years, so has
Fred’s work, which no longer includes building the bodies of milk
delivery floats and milk collection vans!
Fred Williams said “I’ve seen many changes over the years,
staff and work wise but I have enjoyed, and still enjoy working at the
creamery and have no regrets. There has been lots of fun and laughter in
the last fifty years and I have made very good friends.”
Alan Wyn Jones, Managing Director said “During his service
Fred will have seen enormous change in the workplace but he has always
given 100% commitment and effort in every aspect of his work. His
long-service is a truly remarkable achievement. On behalf of all of his
work colleagues, our Directors and farmer Members we all thank Fred for
his loyal service to the Society and long may it continue”.
Committed family-man Fred has reduced his working hours to spend more
time with his wife, children and grandchildren, but has no plans to
retire just yet!
